WhereIsMyTransport has launched a transit data API that offers transport-related data from certain emerging market cities to third party services and apps. The South Africa based company started with a number of South African cities, but is quickly expanding to Egypt, Nigeria, and Tanzania.
The AP Metadata Service that has internally powered the Associated Press' award-winning news operation is now available to third-party developers and publishers. The service is aimed at publishers looking to "add rich metadata to their content, enabling them to connect their customers with more relevant news and information." The AP delivers the Metadata service in a cloud-based offering via a set of APIs associated with the organizations news content.
